IMHO, being no expert, it seems that the verbs should be consistent thus
the previously suggested understandings could be:
"In whom we ARE GIVEN LIFE, ARE MOVED, and ARE MADE TO EXIST"
"FOR whom WE LIVE, MOVE, and HAVE BEING."
19 For I, through the law, died to the law, that I might live to God. 20
I have been crucified with Christ, and it is no longer I that live, but
Christ living in me. That life which I now live in the flesh, I live by
faith in the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself up for me.
Given the above passage, I don't see a logic problem reading the Acts
passage either way-- given Calvin or not. :)
